by Michèle Borer 27 May 2022
Keeping your home constantly organized is time consuming and a big challenge. It doesn't have to be! With the right system, keeping your home organized is easy. We show you in seven steps how you can easily bring long-term order into your home.

Step 1 - Plan

Always work room by room or area by area and determine what goals should be achieved. If you can already do this in Step 1, take all the measurements of the room/area and plan the future layout as well as which organizers and storage systems you will need for it (see also Step 4 - Layout). 

Step 2 - Overview

Clear out everything and lay it out well and clearly in front of you, preferably already in rough categories for a good overview.
ūüí°Tip: Group things already when clearing out roughly (e.g. cleaning materials, electronics, handicrafts, supplies etc.). This makes the subsequent sorting easier, because you have a better overview.

Step 3 - Sort out

Properly dispose of expired products and sort out unwanted items, anything at all:

  • is unnecessarily duplicated and more
  • is no longer or has never been used
  • is broken
  • does not belong in this room
  • no longer pleases you¬†

Step 4 - Categorize

Divide your products and items into categories. These can be broad categories like electronics, cosmetics, crafts or detailed categories like cables, painting, facial care.
ūüí°Tip: The more general the categories are, the easier and more flexible you can categorize new products / items. The categories must make sense for you personally, so that keeping order is as easy as possible.¬† ¬†

Step 5 - Layout

Plan the new layout. Best additionally with a rough sketch and masses. Plan by category and zones. A category distributed in several organizers, should always be planned next to each other. What is often needed should be quickly at hand. Very important: Keep dangerous things / categories for children such as cleaning products or medicines out of reach.
Organize the appropriate organizers and storage systems, if you do not already have them at home.

Step 6 - Clean

Clean the room/area thoroughly before rearranging.

Step 7 - Arrange

Organize the new categories and zones with the appropriate storage systems. Put away the still empty organizing products and check if the planned layout fits for you or change it a little bit if necessary.
Optional: Temporarily label the organizing products with the planned categories using Post-it notes.
Now put the newly organized items into the organizing products and label them definitively with the corresponding category.

And finally: From now on, everything has its fixed place, so you create long-term order.
